Static vs. Dynamic Data
When it comes to assessing and ensuring quality in your manufactured components and products, sometimes just taking a few static measurements, post-process, is sufficient: a dimension here, a position there, a weight, or any one of countless other factors that could be measured. Other times, in order to ensure quality, dynamic measurements must be taken: break-away torque & running torque, force & motion throughout the cycle of an actuator, etc. For any one user of a manufacturing and test system, the most important things are that the system’s capabilities match the user’s need, and that the system allows for flexibility as the user’s needs change over time.
All of Promess’ systems for assembly and test purposes, have been designed to excel at collecting & assessing both static & dynamic data, depending on your need. Integrated sensors and advanced software collect and analyze real-time data, in process. This data ensures the quality of every component produced. It can be used to validate the process, and to ensure consistently high quality for every assembly produced. And finally, this data can be used to validate the equipment & system itself.
Along with Promess’ capability of collecting and assessing both static and dynamic data, in real time, as your products are being processed, the Promess system itself is dynamic. The software that it runs on is constantly being updated, revised, and tailored with new capabilities to meet your new needs as they arise.
Sometimes your need as a manufacturer, and your customers’ needs, are static and unchanging for long periods of time, and sometimes those needs are in a constant state of flux. For most of us, the need falls somewhere in between those extremes.
Whatever your and your customers’ manufacturing & test needs are now, and whatever your and your customers’ need is likely to become, shouldn’t the manufacturing equipment and system you have put in place, and in which you have, no doubt, invested significant resources, be capable of the full range of potential needs, even as your and your customers’ needs change over time?
If you are using a system that must be wholly replaced every time your need changes, you’re wasting a lot of money and time…
